Liposome greatly increases absorption & assimilation and protects from stomach & duodenal acids. Oral 5-HTP products can often cause digestive disturbance. This patented nanosphere liposome is fast acting and calming and does not create digestive distress.

For more than 30 years, the natural dietary supplement 5-Hydroxytryptophan, better known as 5-HTP, has been encouraging the body’s ability to frankly, feel good!

5-Hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP) is a precursor and metabolic intermediate in the biosynthesis of the neurotransmitters, serotonin and melatonin (see diagram on reverse). The naturally occurring essential amino acid tryptophan, when acted upon by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase, converts to5-HTP. 5-HTP is then decarboxylated to serotonin, thereby elevating extracellular serum serotonin levels. This occurs both in the nervous tissue and in the liver. In the target specific, nanosphere liposome form, it is not enzymatically degraded neither do amino acids compete with it for absorption, which allows it to easily cross the blood-brain barrier.

There is a large body of evidence suggesting that low serum serotonin levels are a common consequence of “modern living”. Another disease of civilization!

Beyond its application for antidepressant use in managing mood disorders, 5-HTP has been shown to offer nutritional benefits for symptoms of eating disorders, autism, fibromyalgia, migraine headache pain and premenstrual syndrome. Favorable nutritional indications for 5-HTP have also been found for patients with heart disease, narcolepsy and obesity. For insomnia, 5-HTP has been linked to the pineal gland in the promotion of melatonin production. Other neurotransmitters and CNS chemicals, such as melatonin, dopamine, nor-epinephrine, and beta-endorphin have also been shown to increase following oral administration of assimilable 5-HTP. When serotonin levels are out of balance or deficient, anxiety, panic attacks, depression and insomnia are more likely to occur.

HIGHLY ASSIMIBLE 5-HTP Liposome merits a place at the front of the ranks of the serotonin enhancers instead of being used as a last resort!
